Samsung better get out update to Gingerbread fast. Their update to my Galaxy S in the UK, made it worse. None of the problems below happened with 2.2.1
1- It freezes and crashes frequently, almost everyday.
2- Music player stops for no apparent reason.
3- When you press the End button to terminate the phone call, the phone application goes into background but call is not terminated. You cannot access the phone application again the bar stays highlighted in green.
It is no excuse that the customers are on other networks. It is customer experience that counts and networks should sign up to that. Samsung please learn that it is customer experience that matters and look at Apple not just mimic their products.
Please instead of shipping dozens of varieties of the same product that you cannot support just concentrate on few that you can support and give customers positive experience.

Go to Settings/Wireless and network/Mobile Network/Access Point Names/
Every phone network operator has different settings for the APN. You can usually find the settings from the internet - search for the name of your phone network operator and APN.

Hey everyone, I just bought my Galaxy S and I have a couple of questions about it and I hope you are gonna help me. First of all I cant download apps from my PC to phone. I connect it by USB and sign in at Android Market but when I click Install it says "It will be installed in a short time" or something like that, and it never does... Until I connect to Wi-Fi somewhere outside or connect it with USB on other computer with connection. So does anyone know what the problem is and how can I fix it? And the other question is about android version. My phone is running on android 2.2, so I want to update it to 2.3 but dont know how or where to find it... Help!? And does it make a difference where am I from? By the way I am from Bosnia and Herzegovina.
and yea, i upgraded the os to the gingerbread, but the problems persisted.
i bought a galaxy s a few days ago and i realized two things that are bothering me.
1. when i lock the screen, after about 10-15 seconds, it automatically goes off.
2. my phone goes off during calls. please i really need to get these fixed coz i love the phone.
does the screen or the touch panel fall off or come out after a long use since the screen is glued to the chassis with adhesive?
Hey Everyone !!! Thanx for ALL the help. I bought the Galaxy S .... delivered 2day....and..... thanx to all of u...upgraded to gingerbread too !!! Its ... LOVELY (for want of a better word) !!!!
I am unable to synchronise contacts of my galaxy S to samsung kies.please help. It says device not responding!
Anonymous, 11 Jun 2011Bought one recently and had to give it out, the battery is horrible drains too fast when fully... moreI use XWJS7, it is "only" Froyo 2.2.1 but batterylife is very good, far better than any Gingerbread-rom I have tried. There are very many different ROMs for Galaxy S and many of them have short batterylife, but others have really good batterylife, so just use Odin and install another rom from samfirmware.com if you want better/longer batterylife.

Are you 'Sulaiman'?, because your posting is identical to his!
If not, scroll down to the posting I gave to him about your problem. The answer is the same!
